97 ZJ rear end whine

Im getting a whining noise from the rearend on my ZJ,its got 68k on it now.I was going on a trip up north(roughly 800 miles round trip) and was wondering if I should take the chance or should I take apart the rear and start replacing bearings and such.

depends on if you want to spend money on a 400 mile tow bill

it may make it.... know one can say for sure
it could even lock up.... rip apart the drive line or transfer case
lose a wheel and wreck
